This year, TP has used the home 42 personal and rented only 7 days. (we have opted not to use the seven day rule at this juncture) making it not a vacation property but a single residence.
Do you mean the 14/15 day rule? What makes you think that is an option? Less than 15 days means no income or deductions are counted. As you say, it is not a vacation rental property.
So I don't think it is considered a rental property at all (and a non-rental property won't use the passive losses).
